    Thanks for the heads up folks, I'll let R&D know. Most (if not all) of these keywords are known issues, although I've never seen anyone actually DIM VERSION5 as a variable, but I've duely noted it!

    Russ, we've never heard of any problems with minimizing the IDE, so if you still have a copy of the source code that clearly stops the IDE from minimizing after compile, we'd appreciate you forwarding it to Tech Support (all code is treated in confidence, of course!).

    Thanks!

    I've got another odd one. After my app got above a certain size
    (> 388k) the editor would no longer minimize itself after
    compile/run. When I tighten things up a bit, I'll go back over
    the threshold and it will minimize again. Add a feature and
    back to full screen. It's not a big deal, but a little irritating.

    In addition to XINPFLOW - the following keywords also don't get
    color highlighted or work with context-sensitive help:

    CVS, CVWRD, TIMEOUT, VERSION4, VERSION5 and.. WEND (!)

    BTW, it's also possible to DIM VERSION3 (VERSION4 and VERSION5).
    Compiler instructions, I know. No big deal, but good to know for
    next version, whenever it now may come..

    Forgot to mention, when DIMing the XOUTFLOW it goes blue and capitalises and XINPFLOW stays black and lower case.

    PB 6 editor quirk

    This is really for PowerBasic support - in the PB 6 editor the comms functions XOUTFLOW changes to blue and capitalises (or capitalizes for the Americans !) but the corrosponding XINPFLOW stays lower case and black i.e. the editor doesn't recognise it as a reserved word but my program still compiles. Also I can DIM XOUTFLOW and XINPFLOW as variables and assign them values - since they're partly reserved words (i.e. belong to the COMM SET function group) should I be allowed to do this ?
